ORDER GRANTING WESTCARE'S REQUEST FOR MORE TIME TO FILE AN OPPOSITION TO PLAINTIFF'S CROSS MOTION
Defendant Westcare California Inc. ("Westcare") filed an eX parte objection to what it argues is Plaintiff's untimely filing of a cross motion for partial summary judgment (Plaintiff's cross motion"). Westcare argues Plaintiff's cross-motion was filed in contravenion of the Court's scheduling order. Westcare's position is arguable and could be correct. However, rather than reaching this issue and deciding whether the last law and motion hearing date prescribed in the scheduling order precluded a party from filing a related or counter motion prescribed in Local Rule 230(e), a Minute Order was filed on January 20, 2010 setting forth a briefing scheduling for Plaintiff's cross-motion. Westcare states in its ex parte objection that it requests "at least three weeks to file an opposition to [P]laintiff's cross motion." This request is granted. Therefore, Defendants' opposition to Plaintiff's cross motion shall be filed by February 5, 2010. Any reply shall be filed by February 12, 2010. The cross motion will be heard on February 22, 2010, commencing at 9:00 a.m.
